    Manly join the race for Manu
    By The Mole
    July 24, 2016


    MANLY have joined the race to sign Parramatta hitman Manu Ma’u.

    The rugged forward is under contract to the Eels for next season but has issues with the club over third-party agreements and his manager is looking at options.

        We need this guy, he is a current NZ international, one of the best backrowers in the game. He is on top of my list of players I want at manly. Plus he is a consistent performer. Get him bozo, but if roosters after they will get him, they always get who they want even though he is not needed by them.

          We'll parramatta ain't going to get hayne. He'll take the easy money option and add to his excellent adventures and play rugby. Bulldog Ritchie just said on KY that the dragons want Norman or hayne.
          Good luck.

          He is a good player and I'd be happy if he came; however, he is another similar body type to Buhrer, Brown, Leary. I expect Leary will not be around next year, and Brown might be released, in which case he would be a good step up.

          I just don't want such a small backrow.

            Honey, I could be a better version of T-Rex, and if you met me, you'd really know what I'm sayin!

              I can't see Brown being released somehow, but the truth is that he is not worth the money he is on. Good utility value if someone is injured, but if we want a utility then it should be Api, not Brown.

              As for Ma’u.....he would probably be an upgrade on Brown but as you alluded to we are overflowing with small back rowers as it is. Ferris rightly has one spot locked up but we need a big, hard running, hard tackling back rower to compliment that.

                Ahh the Jail Birds will be great to watch. Would take him just because Parra fans really like him.

                  He would be a good fit. He may not be 6 foot but he is tough, and one of the better performing back rowers in the comp. Ma'u, Buhrer, Green. 3 different body shapes who all offer different things.

                  You couldn't argue with that being our starting 2017 backrow.

                  Just what we need. Another pee heart Islander that can't play longer than 20 minutes straight.

                    He is not small. Pretty destructive second rower who runs hard straight lines. Also shows his versatility as he has been playing in the centers. I would keep marty in the front row and put Mau in the starting back row. Him or go hard for Jackson.

                            So he has deposed David Mead, who in turn deposed Blake Green, from the top of your most wanted list ?

                                  Would be a great addition to the team. Manu alongside AFB, Taupau, Meehan, Lussick, Jake t, knight, Lussick would be a very feared forward pack

                                    Wait for Knight and Jamil Hoppa to get into firsts. I dont think we'll need Manu
